The hillside suburban town of Adma enjoys extraordinary views over the bay of Jounieh, and of Beirut in the southward distance. The design of this duplex apartment makes the most of this dramatic open vista, with the key reception areas flowing through to a large terrace space. The infinity pool, made with platinum travertine and blue glass tiles, merges with the seascape, as well as the terrain, its lip following the curve of land’s edge.

The exterior sitting room and interior reception and dining area are joined by a wall of sliding glass, as well as by the same platinum grey travertine flooring. Circulation routes sit at the rear of the plan, arranged around a sculptural staircase made with monolithic platinum travertine and a crystal glass balustrade. This feature staircase also serves as an atrium and lightwell, drawing upon the sunlight and greenery of a courtyard garden, situated at the back of the building. The custom gas fireplace in the sitting room is made of black gun-metal and thick double-sided glass. It frames a view of the stairway, atrium, and the charming garden court.

Three bedrooms, all with accompanying bathrooms, are situated on the upper level of the duplex. In addition, the master-bedroom suite acts as a 100 square-meter annex, including spacious dressing rooms and bathrooms. Here, again, the coastal view is framed by large picture windows, and the family room features the same platinum grey travertine from the ground floor.
